Our solar irrigation pump has arrived! Everything we do at Bamboo Village Uganda is done in the most sustainable way possible. That includes irrigation. Rather than depending on polluting (and costly) petrol and diesel pumps, we decided to partner up with Futurepump.
This irrigation pump is powered by 3 solar panels and allows us to pump up to 3,600 liters per hour. It saves an incredible amount of time compared to manual irrigation and is much cheaper and better for the environment than petrol or diesel powered pumps.
That’s it for now. We’ll be back soon with another update!
